several examples of massive united nations lead interventions where the u.n. moved in and established a presence in iraq and afghanistan. it was u.s. and nato lead. in the middle east and north africa particularly in these countries we are discussing something new is happening. in some respects the international community learning to do things differently. we are not going back to what we have done in the last 20 years. we are going to do it in a different way and has an international community we are learning what that process is and if you are on the ground you can see it. a lot of people -- there's a hesitancy about this intervention and this involvement that is quite telling and wasn't there in the past. >> thank you. >> i would like to know -- i am abigail woodward and i would like to know how women's rights are being protected and advanced and i would like to know if the muslim brotherhood has seen this debate impediment to that and how the constitutions are including them. >> let's start with the most significant case, constitutional issues and the role of the muslim brotherhoo

're in a place with a weak government, you have perhaps a u.n. operation in the international coordination is also leadership. you have confusion. i think one of the highest hurdles to overcome is the residual feeling, often among ngos that they will be contaminated if they do a cooperation with the military. but most places, it's only the military but has been rebuffed logistic capacity to project not only power, but to project water treatment units and sanitation equipment into a remote area and to take people out from the remote area who need more sophisticated care. so if you don't have the leadership on the ground, it can help reach those gaps of confusion. there's also continuing intellectual political task. obviously some groups, the red cross and quakers have a long tradition of relating to the military on the battlefield and knowing how to deal with the potential sense of conflict of perspective. but i think that's a dialect that has to be extended to all of these other groups that are active. i think some are fairly pragmatic. i think doctors would have orders right now. and ther

for conflict. and i would look to the state department to carry this into the u.n. so that we get to the international forum particularly if it continues to escalate. member to come to frame that a declaratory policy for the nations that are not -- that have the servers that may not be partisan bidding so that it's clear, and then to start to think of other diplomatic actions that could potentially be taken to cut off the escalation of this activity or its attacks on us or on a larger group etc. >> but i don't want to take off the table actions on the diplomatic actions because i think that we have exhausted many of the potential diplomatic actions. and so we need to think about what are ways to send a strong signal to the leadership in x land and other places by some other actions in putting perhaps covert action. >> quick question, so far the u.s. government has said nothing publicly about who is behind the attacks. there's speculation in the media based on the leaks of incredible sources that the u.s. government has said nothing publicly. what is your decision as to whether or

to the war, but he never denies that he voted to une give callly thank the president for the war effort in iraq. >> moderator: ms. ericson? ericson: the f-35s are designed to carry targeted, smart nuclear bombs. the issue isn't six minutes of noise a day, the issue is nuclear proliferation. now, when i was a child in the early 1960s, vermont was the garden of eden. since bernie sanders came in, vermont's gone to hell. and we've got to stop this hell that he's putting us through. we've got to stop the f-35. we've got to stop nuclear proliferation. sure, they can have it down in south carolina, but we can at least just say no to it here in vermont. now, there are other serious problems with the f-35. we have a problem with solar flares. nasa says the solar flares are going to continue for another year. they disrupt communication, and because solar flares disrupt communication, we can end up with one of these nuclear bombs detonating in the burlington, vermont. .. the military machine would be called into question by, we, the people, saying this is what i want to get done or not get done,

't work for anyone but u.n. scrupulous employers. we need to take the power out of the hands of those that are exploiting our current immigration situation and put it back in the hands of workers in fair and honest employers. if the workers have a legal status, employers can't skirt labor laws and so they would have to pay fair wages and abide by the rules. immigration reform is the right thing to do as well as the economically smart thing to do. children shouldn't have to live in fear of their parents deportation every day of their lives and some of the hardest working most vulnerable people in our society shouldn't have to be subject to exploitation and harassment. finally, i would just like to say that i am truly appreciative of the support that we have received from the urban league and other african-american leaders on this issue i know that there have been in tensions in the past. the reverend of dr. martin luther king jr. when we have those we have to embrace them so we can pass them. this is our time to come together to break those issues down. let's get a solution on this iss
